May says it's my deal, no deal or no Brexit at all

May's Brexit deal leaves many details about the United Kingdom's future relationship with the European Union to further negotiations that will take place after Britain leaves on March 29.

It would add provisions for the Commons to "approve the Government's proposed approach, including whether or not an extension to the implementation period should be pursued; and parliamentary approval of the commencement of the powers implementing the Northern Ireland backstop".

Mr Grogan (Keighley) said: "The deal the Prime Minister is offering us is reality a blind Brexit".

"The agreement that is on the table - the withdrawal agreement and the agreement on the future relationship - are, in our view, the only and best possible to organise an orderly withdrawal", he said.

The issue would be taken up again in parliament on Tuesday, Bercow said.

The Lib Dems are tabling an amendment to the PM's Brexit deal, to be voted on on Tuesday, calling for "all necessary steps" to prepare for another vote.

Ms Shah (Bradford West) said: "It's clear from the fiasco that we've seen in recent days this Government is not fit to lead the country, nor to deliver a Brexit agreement that won't leave us in a worse position than we already find ourselves in through years of Tory austerity".

Ministers will make the government's case during four more days of debate, but few believe they can overcome the intense opposition to the deal.

In an interesting aside, Stephens noted that it is unlikely that Cox himself would have actually written the advice; it would be usual for an attorney-general to seek advice from a legal expert in that field. But the defeat demonstrated the fragility of May's government, which does not have a majority in Parliament.

May said she's in talks to offer Parliament a say over whether to extend the Brexit transition period beyond Dec 2020 if needed, rather than enter into the so-called backstop arrangement created to stop the implementation of a hard border in Ireland.

Backers of another referendum say all of the deals on offer for leaving the European Union are very different from what voters were promised during the 2016 referendum and people should be asked if they still want to go ahead.

The Attorney General warned: "In the absence of a right of termination, there is a legal risk that the United Kingdom might become subject to protracted and repeating rounds of negotiations".

The border backstop is strongly opposed by Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party, which props up May's minority government. 'Great Britain is essentially treated as a third country by Northern Ireland for goods passing from Great Britain to Northern Ireland'.

"The backstop is something nobody wants to go into in the first place, and we will be working to make sure that we don't go into it", she said.

May used an interview on BBC radio to press on with her bid to persuade lawmakers to back her deal.

Nigel Dodds, deputy leader of the Northern Irish Democratic Unionist Party (DUP), confirmed the DUP meant to vote against Mrs May's plan next week but it would continue to support her government.

If her deal fails, Labour has said it will nearly certainly trigger a confidence vote in the Commons, while May also risks a challenge by her own Conservative MPs.

Brexit-supporting legislators worry that opponents of Brexit in Parliament may try to water down the terms of departure from the European Union, or even reverse the country's decision to leave.

"There are those who want to frustrate Brexit and overturn the vote of the British people", Ms.
